I used photocopy paper to make the paper pieced blocks. Now I am have some difficulty removing the paper without ripping all the stitches out. I have pp'ed 8 blocks and I have 8 more to go. Should I shorten my stitch? It is at 2.5 (the preset) right now. Thanks for the info.
BTW, I love paper piecing. The seams look so perfect and it comes together quickly. No sweating perfect accuracy with cutting. I am using the Feeling Crabby pattern right now but can't wait to make a storm at sea with pp'ing.
